Forum: GratefulDead Subject: more non-Dead---WOLFMOTHER!!!

I've mentioned in posts over the last several weeks about being stoked over Wolfmother @ the 9:30 Club here in DC. A band from New Zealand opened called Die! Die! Die!. While the name leaves a little to be desired, they put on a great show for being a three piece. The drummer had a small kit but he BLAZED it like he was trying to kill cockroaches pouring out of his drum heads.

Now, Wolfmother seems to be another band that's brought back heavy rock & roll to the music scene. There seem to be many comparisons to Led Zepplin, but they've really made it a sound all their own. My best description is that it was like controlling an explosion, but one where the control could be lost @ ANY moment. They were EXPLOSIVE!!! I can't say much more than that. This three piece trio is more than the sum of it's parts. I HIGHLY recommend you get their CD, and recommend even more highly that you take the opportunity to see them live. I see no possible way you could be disappointed.

UNICORN!!!

WOLFMOTHER! Motherfucker!!!!!

Wolfmother does appear to be "for real." Good high-energy rock band. Never seen them live, and don't plan to because they are a bit hard for my tastes. However, I can say that they are a very talented original band that has managed to repackage rock and roll for today's generation. I've managed to get my one younger brother (who's into the harder rock stuff) into them, and he's become obsessed.

If you're not willing to shell out your own $$$, try and get someone to gift you a ticket. If you enjoy any '70s rock at all, they give an appropriate nod, but still sound just like themselves. I'm not really into "heavy rock" either, but this speaks to something in me that wants to ROCK!! Their show really BLEW ME AWAY!

These guys do rock it out; kind of AC/DC meets Led Zepplin

The Cult is one of my favorite bands from the 80's. Love Removal Machine, Fire Woman, Sanctuary---all great "hits" from the first few albums they put out.

Man, Wolfmother is an awesome band. I used to frequent the D.C.; Georgetown area, mostly to see Jorma or Hot Tuna and a band called Awareness Art Ensamble, a reggae band that toured up and down the East Coast. Your post brought back alot of memories.

Hot Tuna is playing a few gigs around here in the next month or two @ The Rams Head Live in Baltimore. They seem to play here at least a few times every year, though I've never had the chance to see them perform.

I saw Awareness Art Ensemble at least 30 times - still have my t-shirt. They played triangle area/richmond area all the time in mid to late 80s. Saw them at many clubs, fests, and even opening for Steel Pulse. They were the real deal...

Every generation needs a band to get it through puberty. Wolfmother certainly sounds up to the task even has a little of the really old sabbath feel to it.

Yeah, really enjoyed that band. We were seeing them during the same time period, I saw them anywhere from DC to VA Beach area. I went to Old Dominion University and they were frequently playing near campus. Just a fun band.
